A local court on Friday sentenced two persons to life imprisonment for killing an elderly woman at whose residence they had been employed as domestic help.

Additional District Sessions Judge R P Singh also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 each on Jaivir and Satvir, residents of Orayya and Mainpuri respectively.

The two killed 70-year-old Kamla Devi in August 2007 by slitting her throat and robbed her house of ornaments and other valuables when other family members were not present, prosecutor Jitender Tyagi said. -- PTI
